Five ways to repent Saint John Chrysostom shows us five practical ways to repent.
The first way is to condemn yourself for your sins. The Lord esteems this action greatly. If, of your own volition, you condemn your sins, you’re less likely to repeat them. No fault will be found at the heavenly tribunal over the timely awakening of your conscience through self-criticism.
The second valuable path of repentance is not to bear a grudge against anyone, even your enemies.
I came across a video about the Tragedy of Wounded Knee and the Ghost Dance. Just watching this video makes me upset. This massacre and others like it should have never have occurred. There is something very violent and dark in the American culture, that I think Americans have a difficult time seeing in themselves.
There seems to be a willingness to permit violence against others, that I think people from other cultures find very strange.
